ionic ios app stuck on splash screen - works in emulator not on iphone 5s device

I'm currently getting stuck on the splash screen when pushing to my iOS device. I've made sure to install ngCordova via bower install and all my ionic emulations are working as expected. Only when I deploy to an iOS device, does it get stuck on the splash screen. I've included the proper syntax for the splash screen in the config.xml file

<preference name="AutoHideSplashScreen" value="false" />
<feature name="SplashScreen">
<param name="ios-package" value="CDVSplashScreen" onload="true"/>
</feature>


and I have the following in my main app.js file

.run(function($ionicPlatform, $cordovaSplashscreen, $timeout) {
$ionicPlatform.ready(function() {
$cordovaSplashscreen.hide();


(not including the rest of the content in the .run)

ionic version - 1.2.8

cordova version - 4.0.0


Here is the output in xcode for the working iOS emulation:

Then, when I build to a an actual iPhone 5S I get the following:

2014-11-10 17:09:43.691 endevr[973:264078] DiskCookieStorage changing policy from 2 to 0, cookie file: file:///private/var/mobile/Containers/Data/Application/8512E3E3-FF06-4BDF-94DD-B999AD55ADCC/Library/Cookies/Cookies.binarycookies

looking at the last line of each output, it doesn't seem like ui-router's #/app/browse is getting hit on the iPhone 5S and I can't figure out why. When I run
ionic serve
and
ionic emulate ios
everything renders fine, but once I push it to my actual phone, it hangs on the splash screen.

Answer

Not sure what happened but what I ended up doing is creating a new clone of the remote repo and applied my splash screen related changes to the new instance on my local machine. then i executed the following:

ionic platform rm ios ionic platform add ios ionic build ios

...and it was able to get out of the splash screen. hope this helps.
